    Default My First Post - I may have messed up my iPhone ....

    Hi,

    It is my first post. I wasn't sure if to post here or under another category.

    In advance thank you very much for your help : ) !!!

    My sister got an older iPhone from my uncle, (not a 3G), and she gave it to me in exchange for an ipod.

    Being very interested in languages, I installed an application called WeDict. Moreover, I went to the StarDict webpage and I downloaded a few of the free dictionaries they had there.

    Here starts "the story". Before the iPhone 3G, one was only or mostly able to get an iPhone in the States. My uncle bought it there and enabled it in Mexico for use with a mexican chip. When I got the phone, about three weeks ago, I was very interested to install, like I wrote, a few dictionaries. It was not as easy as to go to the iphone's installer and to press install. One had to go to the internet, find information, and then apply it.

    To make this story even shorter, I'll tell you that I had to "play" on the iPhone with such applications as: AppTapp, iLiberty, and iFuntastic. Because my "playing" was not all the time so successful, I had to go at different times to iTunes and restore one or two times the iPhone.

    The symptoms now on the iPhone are as clear as annoying: the iphone needs a long warm up period to get started, (between 2-3 min.); when it has already turned itself on and you press any application or key, it'll turn itself off again. When on, the maximum time it stays on, is up to three minutes; It won't "slide to unlock" sometimes; if you want to turn it off or back on, it can only be done by pressing the power and home buttons; lastly, it won't recognize iTunes.

    Could you please suggest me a way to get this iPhone back in order. I really appreciate your help. I really hope I can keep the dictionaries, they are very helpful : ) !!!

    Very kind regards,

    igmolinav.

    your thread will be closed pretty soon because of title issues, my recomendation to you is do a DFU and restore to 1.1.4 and then use iliberty to jailbreak, activate and unlock.

    if you dont knwo what i'm talking about then do a search.

    1.1.4 firmware is stable. Also Wedict is stable and wouldnt cause the kind of issues you are having. You have probably installed stuff like Customize which would cause the kind of problems you are having. You need to restore and start over again, go easy on the 'playing' and just install apps you know that work well.

    I didn't mean to cause any problems. I just saw something may be wrong with the way I posted.
